Kenwood's KMM-100U mechless car stereo receiver is designed for modern audiophiles that enjoy listening to their favorite FLAC encoded songs. Simply load your songs onto a USB flash drive and plug it in to the front mounted port! Additionally, there's a 3.5 mm Aux input on the face for Smartphone and music player connectivity, a Supreme Setting for improving heavily compressed MP3s, and Pandora® iPhone app support that upgrades users to the ad-free Pandora One experience for free when connected over USB.

Kenwood Music Control for Android Smartphones - This Kenwood Android app organizes your music and provides quick and easy search capability such as by artist, song, or genre. Additionally, the Kenwood Music Control app also lets you select music based on your mood.

FL Display - The bright 1-line display makes it easy to see the text information when navigating the menu, your iPod, or music content saved on a USB storage device.


Stereo Pre-out with Low-Pass Filter - A low-pass filter allows the outgoing signal to a connected amplifier to filter out midrange and high frequencies. This is useful for amplifiers powering subwoofers as it keeps mid and high frequencies from being amplified and passed through to a speaker designed to handle only low frequencies.


Remote Control - This wireless remote control easily controls volume levels, switch music sources, or select your favorite tracks with the numeric access keys.

Kenwood KMM-100U Mechless Digital Media Car Stereo Receiver with USB & Aux-In
Kenwood KMM-100U Mechless Digital Media Car Stereo Receiver with USB & Aux-In is rated 4.0 out of 5 by 1.
Rated 4 out of 5 by from No more (easily scratched) shiny discs!So my fiancee's Sony AM/FM/CD head unit goes insane and won't turn off (or down), and I buy a "new" 1996 Sonoma pickup with a stock radio - great opportunity to try out a (pair of) new AM/FM/USB receiver(s).Pros:Volume knob.No shiny disc thingies.Almost intuitive controls.Better-than-stock sound.Doesn't require an iPud as source.Decent EQ presets for our vehicles.Shallow depth simplifies installation.Sandisk Cruzer Fit thumb(nail) drive. (not included)Cons:No "Shuffle All" option if your USB drive has songs in individual folders.Kenwood's "Music Control" app for Android is an embarrassment. It should be taken out behind the chemical shed and shot. The functionality (live USB connectivity) that would intuitively be expected from this app is missing. Do not buy this product just for this feature.The above criticism aside, you *can* use the Kenwood Music Control app (or any other music player app) through the headphone out/aux in cable and at the same time charge your phone via the USB cable.As for the "missing" USB drive shuffle setting, it would be useful for the shuffle cycle to be (RANDOM OFF/RANDOM FOLDER/RANDOM ALL), but you only get the first two. The quick-n-easy workaround is to dump all your files into one folder on the USB drive, which doesn't have to be in the first level, and the head unit will read all the files into memory and shuffle them quite nicely. If your filenames contain artist, album, and track number they also sort and play consecutively quite well.The best USB thumb drive currently available for this application is the Sandisk Cruzer Fit - so tiny you can almost close the dust door over the USB port with it installed. I got mine at a local retailer.I'm quite pleased with these little receivers. They pull in FM well, make pretty sounds, have a decent feature set, and won't get replaced for as long as they continue to function. So far we're both working with stock speakers, which will be replaced at some point in the future - hers sooner, 'cause when the Sony blew it killed one of her speakers. Mine will also eventually get a small self-powered sub, which will hook up quite easily when necessary.Metra car-specific install kits and wiring made the installations trivial - hers took 45 minutes, mine was 30.
